REPORT 


OF  THE 


Superintendent  of  Public  Streets, 

HIGHWAYS  AND  SQUARES. 


OFFICE  OF  THE. SUPERINTENDENT  OF  PUBLIC  STEEETS,  \ 
HIGHWAYS  AND  SQUARES, 

NEW  CITY  HALL,  July  15,  1889.  ) 

To  the  Honorable  the  Board  of  Supervisors 

of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN  :     In  accordance  with  Resolution  No.  2213  (Third  Series), 
herewith  submit  my  report  for  the  fiscal  year  ending  June  30,  1889. 

There  has  been  5  2350-5280  miles  of  streets  paved  with  basalt  blocks,  and 
14  598-5280  miles  of  sewers  built,  for  which  see  annexed  tables. 

Of  these  streets  so  paved  3  1122-5280  miles  have  been  accepted  by  your 
Honorable  Board  and  added  to  the  accepted  streets  of  this  city. 

The  work  of  improving  the  streets  of  this  city  heretofore  accepted  has  pro- 
gressed, as  far  as  was  possible,  with  the  monies  appropriated  for  this  depart- 
ment, during  the  past  fiscal  year.  1  hope  to  continue  this  work,  and  repave 
with  basalt  block,  as  many  of  these  streets  originally  paved  with  cobbles,  as  the 
monies  now  appropriated  for  repairs  on  accepted  streets  will  permit.  This 
work  of  repaving  is  in  my  judgment  the  wisest  and  most  economic  course, 
all  attempts  to  repair  the  cobble  paved  streets  in  that  portion  of  the  city  sub- 
ject to  heavy  traffic  is  simply  a  waste  of  public  money. 


The  amount  of  sewers  constructed  during  the  past  fiscal  year  denotes  an 
improvement  in  the  sanitary  condition  of  the  City,  and  also  indicates  its  in- 
creased growth  both  in  extent  and  population.  This  work  is  up  to  the  pres- 
ent being  performed  without  any  definite  plan  or  system,  the  only  exception 
being  that  section  of  the  city  lying  between  Army  and  Channel  streets  and 
1 


2       REPORT  OF  SUPERINTENDENT  OF  STREETS. 

Valencia  street,  and  for  which  the  City  Engineer  has  prepared  a  plan.  All 
sewers  now  being  constructed  within  these  boundaries,  are  built  in  accordance 
with  his  plan  for  that  district.  The  outlet  for  most  of  these  sewers,  is  through 
the  Array  street  sewer,  but  the  city  has  not  as  yet  acquired  the  right  of  way 
over  any  of  the  intersecting  streets  between  Mission  street  and  Potrero  av- 
enue, and  Twenty-sixth  and  Army  streets,  except  Bryant  avenue,  and  only  a 
small  portion  of  the  sewers  in  that  district  can  be  conducted  to  the  receiving 
sewer  along  the  street.  The  condemnation  of  the  land  necessary  to  extend 
the  streets  within  the  points  named  to  Army  street  is  now  a  sanitary  necess- 
ity, and  I  respectfully  request  that  your  Honorable  Board  commence  pro- 
ceedings to  so  extend  them. 

I  hope  that  your  Honorable  Board  will  in  the  near  future  have  a  system  or 
plan  prepared  for  the  further  extension  of  the  sewers.  This  is  now  more 
than  ever  necessary,  as  the  increasing  growth  of  the  city  requires  that  the 
sewering  of  the  outlying  districts  be  projected — not  in  fractional  parts  with 
no  relation  to  each  other  either  in  shape  or  capacity,  but  according  to  some 
definite  plan.  The  random  manner  in  which,  sewers  have  heretofore  been 
constructed  will  yet  cause  serious  loss  and  damage,  as  every  day  new  sewers 
are  being  built,  which  have  to  discharge  into  others,  entirely  inadequate  to 
carry  oft  the  sewage  and  storm  waters  conveyed  to  them.  To  provide  a  par- 
tial outlet  for  sewers  so  overcharged  it  will  be  necessary  to  construct  auxil- 
iary or  relieving  sewers,  to  divert  a  portion  of  the  sewage  to  other  channels. 

PAVING. 

The  quantity  of  basalt  block  pavement  shows  a  large  increase  over  the 
previous  year.  In  the  fhst  half  of  the  past  year  there  was  a  scarcity  of  this 
material,  but  I  am  now  informed  that  the  supply  is  ample  and  as  a  conse- 
quence the  cost  of  fetich  pavement  has  fallen  a  little  during  the  past  six 
months. 

During  my  incumbency  of  this  office  I  have  endeavored  to  have  this  class 
of  work  performed  in  a  durable  and  substantial  manner,  and  1  am  satisfied 
that  the  streets  so  paved  during  that  period  will  not  cost  the  city  any  money 
for  repairs  for  many  years  to  come. 

MACADAMIZED  STREETS. 

During  the  past  year  there  has  been  19  4627-5280  miles  of  macadamized 
streets  constructed  in  this  city. 

Although  this  form  of  street  improvement  is  open  to  great  objection,  yet 
in  certain  localities  it  is  the  only  form  of  improvement  which  it  is  possible 
to  obtain.  In  many  cases  where  new  streets  are  opened  and  are  ordered  im- 
proved, the  work  of  grading  if  added  to  a  more  expensive  improvement  would 
exceed  one-half  the  assessed  value  of  thn  property  affected  aud  therefore  could 
not  be  perfoimed  unless  the  city  paid  the  difference  in  cost,  and  in  other 
cases  the  property  owners  would  not  agree  to  construct  any  other  pavement.

The  great  objection  to  macadam  is  that  there  cannot  be  any  provision  made 
according  to  law  to  water  or  repair  the  streets  so  improved,  in  the  specifi- 
cations for  such  work  adopted  by  your  Honorable  Board.  I  have  as  far  as 
possible  sought  to  effect  an  improvement  in  the  manner  of  doing  this  class  of 
work  and  have  inserted  a  clause  requiring  the  contractors  in  all  cases  to  water 
macadamized  streets  for  a  period  of  seven  days  after  completion . 

BITUMINOUS    BOCK  PAVEMENT. 

The  amount  of  bituminous  rock  pavement  laid  down  during  the  past  fiscal 
year  (1  28-5280  miles)  is  set  forth  in  annexed  tables,  almost  all  of  this  work 
has  been  performed  by  property  owners  by  their  own  choice.  In  many  cases 
where  your  Honorable  Board  ordered  streets  and  crossings  paved  with  basalt 
blocks,  the  owners  of  the  property  liable  for  costs  of  such  improvements  elect- 
ed to  enter  into  private  contract  with  parties  engaged  in  laying  bituminous 
rock  and  have  the  street  in  front  of  their  premises  so  paved.  The  cleanli- 
ness and  uniformity  of  this  pavement,  and  the  little  noise  made  by  traffic 
over  it,  caused  this  preference,  even  though  they  were  aware  your  Honorable 
Board  have  not  yet  decided  to  accept  it. 

The  cost  of  repairs  on  all  streets  heretofore  paved  with  this  material  has 
been  borne  by  the  contractors  who  have  laid  it  down,  by  arrangement  between 
them  and  property  owners,  but  when  properly  laid  on  a  concrete  foundation 
the  repairs  needed  are  few  and  can  be  performed  at  a  very  small  expense. 

The  experience  of  other  cities  both  in  this  country  and  in  Europe,  in  which 
similar  material  has  been  used,  shows  that  the  cost  of  repairs,  on  streets  so 
paved  compares  favorably  with  the  cost  of  repairs  on  streets  paved  with  any 
other  material.  In  some  cases  the  expense  did  not  exceed  two  cents  per 
square  yard  per  year,  of  course  this  applies  to  streets  not  subject  to  extraor- 
dinarily heavy  traffic,  and  in  many  cases  it  is  asserted  that  no  repairs  have 
been  needed  for  a  period  of  ten  years  after  construction. 

The  cost  of  repairing  the  basalt,  granite  and  cobble  pavements  laid  in  this 
city  prior  to  1886  will  average  ten  cents  per  square  yard  per  year. 

In  my  judgment  this  material,  for  economy,  ease  of  travel  and  cleanliness, 
excels  any  other  form  of  pavement  ever  laid  down  on  streets  of  this  city,  and 
if  the  question  of  its  durability  was  permanently  established,  it  should  be 
used  on  all  streets  west  of  Stockton  and  southwest  of  Eighth  streets,  which 
are  not  subject  to  heavy  traffic. 

TBAFFIO   OVER   STREETS. 

I  desire  to  call  the  attention  of  your  Honorable  Board  to  the  extraordinary 
wear  the  streets  paved  with  stone  blocks  in  the  business  portion  of  the  city 
are  subject  to.  I  find  that  the  better  condition  streets  are  put  in,  the 
heavier  the  loads  they  are  subjected  to.  I  have  been  informed  on  good  au- 
thority, that  loads  exceeding  twenty  thousand  pounds  have  been  conveyed 
over  them  on  trucks  the  tires  of  whose  wheels  in  no  case  exceeded  five  inches 


4       REPORT  OF  SUPERINTENDENT  OF  STREETS. 

in  width.     This  subjects  the  roadway  over  which  such  loads  travel  to  a  pres- 
sure exceeding  one  thousand  pounds  to  the  square  inch. 

No  roadway  no  matter  what  material  is  used  therein,  or  how  well  construc- 
ted, can  long  withstand  such  traffic,  therefore  I  earnestly  request  your  Hon- 
orable Board  to  so  amend  Section  11,  General  Order  1587,  as  to  prohibit  the 
hauling  of  such  excessive  loads  unless  the  tires  of  the  wheels  of  the  trucks 
or  drays  on  which  they  are  carried  are  of  a  width  commensurate  with  the 
load. 

SIDE   SEWEES. 

One  of  the  most  destructive  trials  the  paved  and  macadamized  streets  of 
this  city  are  subject  to,  is  the  construction  and  repair  of  side  sewers.  Under 
the  provisions  of  General  Order  1588,  any  person  on  deposit  of  $20.00  in  this 
office,  can  obtain  a  permit  to  dig  up  the  street  and  cut  into  the  main  sewer. 
No  care  which  it  is  possible  for  me  to  exercise,  can  insure  the  proper  recon- . 
struction  of  the  streets  so  disturbed,  I  therefore  suggest  that  said  order  be 
amended  so  as  to  have  all  such  work  performed  by  this  department,  and  have 
the  deposit  graduated  to  insure  payment  for  the  work. 

VAN  NESS   AVENUE. 

During  the  past  year  the  unfinished  portion  of  Van  Ness  Avenue  between 
Market  and  Yallejo  streets  has  been  completed.  I  have  heretofore  prepared 
by  direction  of  your  Honorable  Board  a  diagram  of  the  lands  to  be  condemned 
under  the  provisions  of  an  act  of  the  Legislature  approved  March  6th,  1889, 
for  the  extension  of  Van  Ness  Avenue  from  Vallejo  street  to  the  waters  of 
the  Bay,  also  a  description  of  the  boundaries  of  the  lands  to  be  assessed  for 
benefits  and  damages.  It  is  to  be  hoped  that  this  most  important  work  will 
be  performed  as  quickly  as  possible  as  it  will  open  up  a  portion  of  this  city 
whose  progress  has  heretofore  been  retarded  for  want  of  this  improvement. 

In  this  connection  I  desire  to  call  your  attention  to  the  proposition  made 
by  Gen.  Miles  regarding  the  extension  of  Van  Ness  Avenue  and  the  further 
work  of  constructing  a  driveway  from  that  avenue  to  the  Presidio  Reserva- 
tion. That  gentlemen  informed  me  that  if  the  property  owners  along  the 
line  of  Lombard  street  would  sewer  and  curb  that  street  he  would  grade  and 
macadamize  the  roadway  thereof  from  Van  Ness  Avenue  to  the  Reservation 
line.  I  need  scarcely  say  that  the  work  herein  proposed  to  be  done,  and 
which  Gen.  Miles  has  volunteered  to  perform  free  of  any  cost  to  the  people, 
together  with  the  opening  of  Van  Ness  Avenue,  would  enhance  the  value  of 
property  in  that  section  of  the  city,  and  give  an  -impetus  to  improvements 
therein,  which  it  cannot  have  until  this  work  is  accomplished. 

COUNTY    EOADS. 

The  appropriations  for  repairs  on  the  County  roads  for  the  past  fiscal 
year,  $8000,  has  limited  the  amount  of  work  which  could  be  done. 


REPORT  OF  SUPERINTENDENT  OF  STREETS.       5 

The  increasing  travel  over  that  portion  known  as  the  Mission  road  com- 
pels  continuous  repairs  thereto.  It  is  the  main  highway  running  southerly 
from  the  city.  Almost  all  the  farm  produce  to  supply  our  city  passes  over  it. 
I  have  therefore  been  compelled  to  keep  this  road  in  good  condition,  and  it 
is  now  in  better  condition  than  many  of  the  macadamized  streets  of  this  city. 
The  remainder  of  the  County  roads  not  being  subject  to  much  traffic  do  not 
require  continuous  repairs,  but  their  condition  is  fair,  no  further  improvement 
being  possible  with  the  amount  appropriated. 

In  conclusion  I  thank  your  Honorable  Board  for  the  aid  and  courtesy  ex- 
tended to  me  during  the  past  year,  and  submit  this  report  for  your  consider- 
ation and  judgment.

COUNTY  CLERK'S  REPORT. 


To  the  Honorable  the  Board  of  Supervisors 

Of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco  : 

GENTLEMEN:  In  submitting  for  your  consideration  my  Annual  Report 
showing  the  transactions  of  the  County  Clerk's  Office  for  the  year  ending 
June  30,  1889,  I  desire  to  call  your  attention  to  the  general  increase  of  bus- 
iness in  all  of  the  departments,  consequent  upon  the  steady  growth  of  the  city. 
This  is  particularly  shown  in  the  declarations  of  intentions  filed,  the  certifi- 
cates of  naturalization  issued,  marriage  licenses  granted,  suits  commenced  in 
Superior  Court,  appeals  and  abstracts  from  Justices  Court,  judgments  rendered 
and  the  increase  of  fees  received.  In  no  instance,  however,  is  the  increase  so 
noticeable  as  in  the  Probate  Department  of  the  Superior  Court,  and  it  is  more 
marked  there  because  of  the  pressing  need  of  space  and  conveniences  for  dis- 
patching the  rapidly  increasing  biisiness  of  the  Department. 

Desiring  to  present  to  your  Honorable  Board  the  condition  of  this  Depart- 
ment, so  far  as  it  relates  to  my  office,  I  submit  for  your  consideration  a  few 
comparisons  with  the  business  of  former  years. 

In  the  Probate  Department  every  paper  filed  must  be  entered  upon  the 
Register,  and  in  addition  thereto  all  claims  allowed.  Decrees  and  orders 
made  bonds  approved,  letters  testamentary  or  of  administration,  guar- 
dianship, etc.,  must  be  fully  recorded,  and  all  decrees  and  orders  spread  in 
full  upon  the  minutes  of  the  Court. 

Let  me  give  in  brief  a  comparison  of  the  work  of  the  Probate  Court  from 
its  practical  establishment  in  1849  to  1880,  the  date  of  the  establishment  of 
the  Superior  Court,  with  that  of  the  business  of  the  Probate  Department 
from  that  date  (1880)  to  the  present  time. 

From  1849  to  1880,  a  period  of  nearly  forty-two  years,  there  were  used  thir- 
teen Registers,  containing  9,582  cases.  Since  the  organization  of  the  Super- 
ior Court  in  1880,  nearly  thirteen  registers  have  been  used,  containing  a  total 
of  8,667  cases,  nearly  as  many  in  the  last  nine  years  as  in  the  preceding 
forty- two. 

Eighty-one  minute  books  were  required  for  recording  orders,  decrees,  etc., 


COUNTY  CLERK'S  REPORT.  47 

from  1849  to  1880,  and  since  that  time  the  number  of  volumes  used  is  ninety- 
nine. 

During  the  six  months  ending  December  31,  1888,  there  were  filed  531  new 
cases,  and  the  fees  received  amounted  to  $8,744,00  not  including  the  Library 
fee  of  one  dollar  exacted  in  each  case  filed. 

For  the  six  months  ending  June  30,  1889,  there  were  601  new  cases  filed 
and  the  fees  received  amounted  to  $10,099.95  in  excess  of  the  Library  fee, 
showing  an  increase  of  seventy  new  cases  and  $1,355.75  as  fees. 

The  accommodations  for  records  are  already  overcrowded  and  will  soon  be 
entirely  inadequate. 

All  available  space  for  filing  papers  is  nearly  exhausted  and  the  vault  in  use 
is  more  than  filled,  in  consequence  valuable  papers  cannot  have  the  proper 
care  and  the  labor  of  preserving  them  is  greatly  increased. 

Separate  shelves  and  racks  have  had  to  be  made  for  the  storage  of  the  pa- 
pers of  the  Blythe  and  other  large  estates.  The  Indexes  in  use  are  nearly 
filled  and  some  of  them  are  in  bad  condition,  they  will'soon  have  to  be  re- 
placed and  this  duty  will  require  the  supervision  of  an  experienced  person. 

When  the  vast  amount  and  the  importance  of  the  business  transacted  in  this 
Department  is  taken  into  consideration,  with  the  accommodations  necessary 
for  the  members  of  the  Bar  and  litigants  for  the  transaction  of  such  business, 
your  Honorable  Body  will  find  upon  inquiry  that  the  present  facilities  are 
entirely  inadequate  therefor. 

In  calling  your  attention  particularly  to  the  needs  of  the  Probate  Depart- 
ment, I  am  influenced  by  the  hope  that  it  may  assist  in  providing  in  the 
building  now  in  course  of  construction  apartments  suitable  and  convenient  for 
the  safe  keeping  of  its  important  records  with  proper  facilities  for  the  public 
having  business  therewith. 

Your  obedient  servant, 

WM.  A.  DAVIES, 
July  15,  1889.  County  Clerk.

ASSESSOR'S    REPORT. 


ASSESSOR'S  OFFICE, 
SAN  FRANCISCO,  .July  24 


,  1889.    j 


To  the  Honorable  the  Board  of  Supervisors 

Of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN  :  In  compliance  with  Resolution  No.  2213,  of  your  Honorable 
Body,  I  herewith  submit  my  annual  report  as  City  and  County  Assessor,  for 
the  year  ending  June  30,  1889.  On  the  first  Monday  of  June  last,  I  delivered 
to  John  A.  Russell,  Clerk  of  your  Board,  the  Assessment  Roll  of  Personal 
Property,  contained  in  seventeen  volumes,  amounting  to  $65,153,068.  This 
is  au  increase  over  last  year  of  $3,231,439. 

On  June  29,  1889,  I  also  delivered  to  you  the  Real  Estate  Assessment  Roll,, 
contained  in  forty-four  volumes,  amounting  to  $240,819,652,  of  which  $172,- 
248,720  was  assessment  against  land  and  $68,570,932  was  the  assessment  on 
improvements  located  thereon. 

In  addition  to  the  above  I  also  delivered  one  volume,  containing  Assess- 
ment for  the  payment  of  principal  and  interest  on  Dupont  Street  bonds, 
two  volumes  of  Real  Estate  Indexes,  and  forty-seven  Block  Baoks  of  Mips 
of  all  the  lands  and  subdivisions  of  Real  Estate  within  the  City  and  County 
of  San  Francisco. 

The  Real  Estate  Assessment  Roll  shows  an  increase  of  $29,351,665  over 
last  year,  of  which  $25,001,927  is  on  land,  and  $4,349,738  on  improvements. 
The  last  three  have  been  years  of  great  prosperity  throughout  the  State  ;  it 
may  not  be  too  much  to  say  that  these  years  have  witnessed  the  greatest  ma- 
terial progress  enjoyed  by  the  Pacific  Coast  during  the  last  decade. 

The  prosperity  of  this  city  has  its  foundation  laid  in  the  healthy  and  uni- 
form advance  of  improvement  of  this  State  and  coast. 

The  great  addition  to  the  Assessment  Roll  of  the  Real  Estate  of  the  city 
is  an  index  of  and  a  result  flowing  from  the  steady  and  continued  growth 
and  property  increase  of  the  Pacific  slope. 

The  section  of  the  city  embraced  within  the  district  lying  North  of  Cali- 
fornia, East  of  Stockton  streets  and  to  the  bay,  has  not  advanced  beyond  last 


68  ASSESSOR'S   REPORT. 

year's  figures.  This  section  embraces  about  all  of  the  city  that  had  an  active 
existence  thirty  years  ago.  It  also  includes  the  portion  afflicted  with 
the  presence  of  the  Chinese.  Wherever  these  people  settle  property  values 
cease  to  advance.  All  other  sections  of  the  city  have  advanced,  in  some  to  a 
marked  degree.  The  Cable  Railway  systems  are  a  prominent  factor  in  en- 
hancing the  land  values  of  the  sections  traversed  and  served  by  them,  this  is 
true  in  a  very  pronounced  degree  of  the  Powell  Street  Railway,  traversing  the 
section  known  as  Pacific  Heights,  lying  West  of  Van  Ness  Avenue.  The 
Omnibus  Cable  Railway  has  also  contributed  greatly  to  the  enhancement  of 
land  values,  in  the  districts  South  of  Market  street,  notably,  from  about 
Sixth  to  Twenty-six  streets,  for  blocks  on  either  side  of  Howard  street. 

Complaint  has  hitherto  been  made  that  the  sasessments  levied  by  this 
office  on  land  in  certain  districts  were  not  sufficiently  high  to  meet  the  re- 
quirements of  the  street  law  known  as  the  Vrooman  Act.  All  street  assess- 
ments are  made  under  this  law;  one  of  its  requirements  is,  that  no  assess- 
ment made  for  street  improvement  purposes  shall  exceed  in  its  cost  fifty  cents 
on  the  dollar  of  the  assessment  levied  by  the  City  and  County  Assessor,  for 
State  and  County  Taxes.  Districts  lacking  street  improvements  need  not  de- 
lay intended  inauguration  of  the  same.  I  believe  the  city  authorities  should, 
as  much  as  possible,  protect  the  individual  tax-payer  against  being  "  improved 
out  of  his  property,"  by  reason  of  the  heavy  expenses  incurred  in  grading 
and  sewering  large  districts  which  do  not  need  and  cannot  use  the  same  for 
many  years  after,  but  whilst  not  believing  in  forcing  improvements  upon  dis- 
tricts not  sufficiently  populated,  yet,  I  also  believe,  that  injustice  is  often 
done  to  a  neighborhood  by  the  factious  and  obstructive  conduct  of 
non-progressive  owners  of  land  in  a  section  in  great  need  of  being  graded 
and  sewered. 

It  is  my  belief,  that  the  land  valuations  contained  in  the  Assessment  Roll 
for  1889,  will  admit  of  the  inauguration  of  street  improvements  in  all  sections 
of  the  city  that  stand  in  need  of  them. 

It  may  not  be  out  of  place  for  me  at  this  point,  to  call  attention  to  the 
character  and  style  of  improvements  erected  within  the  last  year  or  so. 

Business  blocks  are  built  in  a  manner  that,  though  giving  full  scope  to  a 
architectural  grace  and  beauty,  never  sacrifice  strength  and  solidity.  No  one 
can  fail  to  observe  the  great  difference  in  the  character  of  the  structures 
erected  of  late  years,  compared  to  those  formerly  built. 

The  buildings  of  former  years  were  intended  to  subserve  a  temporary 
purpose,  and  were  built  regardless  of  either  beauty  or  permanence,  while 
those  of  to-day  are  true  types  of  the  best  structures  known  to  the  period. 
This  indicates  the  change  from  a  past  uncertainty  of  the  present  feeling 
of  assured  confidence  in  the  stability  of  the  city's  future. 

I  have  also  carefully  compiled  the  aggregate  number  of  Personal  Property 
tax-payers,  the  assessed  valuation  of  the  same  and  the  increa3e  over  pre- 
ceding years,  which  shows  an  astonishing  improvement,  both  in  numbers 
and  values  during  the  years  1886,  '87,  '88  and  1889,  together  with  the  assessed 


ASSESSOK'S   REPORT. 


valuation  of  Real  Estate  during  the  same  period  of  time,  which  also  shows 
a  significant  increase.  This  very  marked  improvement  indicates  the  great 
magnitude  of  the  operations  of  this  department.

visions in  three  years,  or  exceeding  twelve  per  cent.,  involving  a  correspond- 
ing increase  in  the  labor  of  this  office  in  Real  Estate  alone. 

NOTE. — A  "  sub  "  or  subdivision  is  a  lot  or  parcel  of  land  owned  by  one

In  this  connection  I  desire  to  to  call  your  attention  to  the  Mortgages  on 
realty  held  by  the  Trustees  of  such  State  Institutions  as  the  University  of 
California,  and  the  Deaf  and  Dumb  and  Blind  Asylum.  The  money  of  these 
institutions  is  loaned  by  the  Trustees  to  private  citizens. 

To  secure  the  loan,  a  mortgage  is  taken  upon  the  reality  of  the  borrower. 

The  Trustees  obtain  sanction  for  their  action  by  virtue  of  An  Act,  passed 
by  the  State  Legislature,  about  fifteen  years  ago. 


ASSESSOR'S   KEPOKT.  73 

The  sum  of  $514,755,  representing  the  value  of  the  above  class  of  mort- 
gages for  this  year  in  this  County,  has  been  stricken  from  the  Assessment 
Roll,  as,  under  a  late  decision  of  our  Supreme  Court,  these  mortgages  have 
been  declared  exempt  from  taxation.  The  letter  of  the  law  permits  the 
Trustees  of  these  institutions  to  loan  the  money  of  the  State  upon  this  class 
of  security.  It  seems  to  me  the  Act  is  open  to  the  gravest  objections. 
The  policy  of  such  legislative  enactments  is  exceedingly  questionable. 
Your  attention  is  here  called  to  the  subject,  because  of  the  hop 3  that  you 
would  thereby  be  induced  to  take  such  steps  as  might  seem  in  your  judg- 
ment proper  to  have  the  State  Legislature  at  its  next  session  memorialized 
regarding  this  evil  with  a  view  to  its  repeal. 

Every  county  in  this  State  has  a  right  to  expect  the  property  located 
within  each  and  every  other  county  will  contribute  its  just  and  reasonable 
proportion  of  tax  to  the  State  Treasury. 

A  law  which  tends  to  create  a  class  exempted  from  the  payment  of  taxes 
to  either  State  or  County,  is  wrong,  and  in  its  nature  radically  unjust ;  such 
laws  are  un-American  and  un-democratic. 

The  constitution  contemplated  that  the  burthens  of  the  State  should  be 
equally  borne  by  all  citizens  of  the  commonwealth. 

This  system  of  cla^s  exemption  from  taxation  is  subversive  of  good 
government.  It  is  unconstitutional  in  its  every  part.  No  constitution  of 
any  form  of  government  contemplates  the  conserving,  by  law,  of  a  system 
that  inherently  provides  for  the  destruction  of  the  State  or  any  of  its  integral 
parts. 

The  revenue  needed  for  the  support  of  these  institutions  of  the  State, 
should  be  derived  from  either  direct  taxation  or  general  public  securities. 

The  amount  expended  by  this  office  during  the  year  ending  June  30,  1889, 
for  salaries  of  extra  deputies  was  $50,000  ;  as  allowed  by  your  Honorable 
Board. 

For  the  amount  of  expenditures  of  this  office  for  advertising,  stationery, 
printing,  etc.,  I  beg  to  refer  you  to  the  report  of  the  Auditor  and  Treasurer, 
as  also  for  the  amount  of  poll  tax  collected. 

I  also  herewith  submit  for  your  inspection,  a  copy  of  my  annual  report  to 
the  Surveyor  General  of  the  State  with  the  statistics  of  the  Mechan- 
ical and  Manufacturing  interests  of  the  City  and  County. 

Very  respectfully, 

J.  C.  NEALON, 

Assessor  of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco.

now  at  large  on  their  own  recognizance.  They  seem  to  have  been  lost  sight 
of  from  time  to  time  in  previous  reports:

REPORT  OF  THE  CHIEF  ENGINEER 


SAN  FRANCISCO  FIRE  DEPARTMENT. 


HEADQUARTERS  FIRE  DEPARTMENT, 
OLD  CITY  HALL, 

SAN  FRANCISCO,  July  1,  1889. 

To  the  Honorable  Board  of  Supervisors 

Of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN  ;  According  to  the  law  governing  the  Department,  the  under, 
signed,  Chief  Engineer,  has  the  honor  of  herewith  submitting  for  your  con- 
sideration the  following  report  of  the  operations  of  the  Department  under 
his  charge  for  the  fiscal  year  ending  June  30,  1889. 

Therein  will  be  found  a  full  list  of  the  officers  and  members  comprising 
the  force,  a  record  of  the  alarms  responded  to,  and  fires  that  have  occurred 
during  the  year;  the  loss  by  fire  and  the  amount  of  insurance  on  property 
affected;  the  aggregate  of  insurance  paid;  also  such  suggestions  and  recom- 
mendations that  appear  to  me  necessary  to  increase  the  efficiency  of  this  branch 
of  the  municipal  service. 

During  the  past  year  the  Department  responded  to  296  first-bell  alarms,  3 
second-bell  alarms  and  1  third-bell  alarm,  and  161  still  or  verbal  alarms, 
making  a  total  of  461  alarms  of  fire  answered  by  the  Department. 

The  total  loss  by  fire  as  determined  by  Captain  White  of  the 

Underwriters  Fire  Patrol  was $1,042,367.35 

Amount  of  Insurance  Paid 593,557.27 


Actual  Loss  to  Property- owners $448,810.08 


CHIEF  ENGINEER'S  REPORT.  161 

NOTABLE    FIRES. 

July  25,  1888,  2:55  P.  M.,  Box  219.  This  alarm  was  for  a  fire  in  the  pack- 
ing house  of  Roth,  Blum  &  Co.,  caused  from  a  defective  smoke  house.  In 
consequence  of  the  inflammable  nature  of  the  contents  of  the  premises,  the 
fire  spread  with  great  rapidity.  Owing  to  the  inadequate  supply  of  water  in 
this  neighborhood,  there  being  but  two  hydrants  in  this  vicinity,  it  required 
great  effort  on  the  part  of  the  Department  to  stop  the  fire  from  spreading  to 
the  adjoining  buildings. 

The  loss  at  this  fire  is  estimated  to  be  $37,731.50. 

September  9,  1888,  1:U  P.  M.,  Box  265.  This  alarm  was  for  a  fire  which 
started  in  the  Main  Street  Planing  Mill,  caused  from  a  spark  from  a  furnace 
Owing  to  the  inflammable  nature  of  the  building  and  the  adjoining  struct- 
ures and  the  high  wind  which  at  the  time  was  prevailing,  the  fire  spread  with 
great  rapidity,  and  proved  to  be  the  most  disastrous  conflagration  of  the  year, 
consuming  everything  in  its  path,  from  Main  street  to  the  water  front. 
The  rapidity  of  this  fire  was  so  great  that  the  hose  of  the  Department  was 
consumed  in  many  instances  as  soon  as  it  was  laid,  thereby  causing  consider- 
able loss  to  the  Department. 

The  loss  at  this  fire  is  estimated  to  be  $453,000. 

May  9,  1889,  2:52  A.  M.,  Box  78.  This  alarm  was  for  a  flre  in  the  Pacific 
Box  Factory,  on  Ninth  street,  between  Harrison  and  Bryant  streets.  Esti- 
mated loss,  $20,000. 

CASUALTIES. 

In  view  of  the  daogerous.duties  the  members  of  the  Department  have  to 
perform,  and  the  great  risks  they  take  in  the  discharge  of  those  duties,  the 
casualties,  I  am  pleased  to  say,  have  been  few  during  the  year.  The  follow- 
ing is  the  list  of  the  most  serious  : 

February  18,  1839,  Henry  Ryder,  Hoseman  in  Engine  9;  crushed  foot  and  injured  ankle  joint  by 
being  run  over  by  the  hose  cart. 

April  18,  1833,  James  Riley,  Foreman  Hose  Company  Xo.  5;  broke  ankle  joint. 

June  5,  1833,  James  Riley.  Assistant  Chief  Engineer,  in  responding  to  an  alarm  of  fire  from  Box 
36  was  thrown  from  his  buggy  and  had  his  wrist  broken  and  leg  injured. 

MORTUARY. 

During  the  year  the  following  members  and  employees  of  the  Department 
died  : 

August  23, 1838,  Thos.  Creighton,  Hoseman  in  Engine  17,  died  of  consumption. 
September  2,  1833,  N.  H.  Arnett,  Driver  of  Hose  5,  died  of  heart  disease. 
September  23,  188S,  David  Donahue,  Hoseman  Engine  9,  killed. 
Ootobsr  13,  18*83,  Fred  Rose,  Engine  5,  died  of  consumption. 
Novembar  28,  1833,  C.  Quigley,  Hoseman  Engine  10,  died  of  consumption.

162  CHIEF  ENGINEER'S   REPORT. 


COEPOBATION     YARD. 

The  relief  apparatus  of  the  Department  for  service  consists  of  7  Steam 
Fire  Engines,  1  Hose  Carriage,  6  Hose  Carts  and  3  Relief  Trucks. 

During  the  year  17  Horses  were  purchased.  ,  Five  Horses  that  were 
declared  of  no  further  use  to  the  Department  were  transferred  to  the  stables 
of  the  House  of  Correction  and  Industrial  School.  Three  Horses  having 
received  fatal  injuries  were  killed  ;  1  Horse  died  from  disease  and  4  were 
sold  at  auction  by  order  of  his  honor  the  Mayor. 

The  Horses  now  in  service  are  distributed  as  follows  :  To  Engine  Com- 
panies, 54;  Hose  Companies,  9;  Hook  and  Ladder  Companies,  10  ;  Engi- 
neers' Buggies,  8,  and  Relief  Horses  in  Corporation  Yard  Stables  and  Alamo 
Square  Stables  17,  making  a  total  of  98  Horses  in  service  in  the  Department 
at  the  close  of  the  fiscal  year. 

Forty-nine  Hydrants  were  set  in  new  locations,  making  a  total  of  1,563 
Hydrants  in  use  by  the  Department. 

Pursuant  to  order  No.  2,031,  amendatory  to  Section  86  of  Order  1,917  of 
the  Honorable  Board  of  Supervisors  of  the  City  and  County  regulating  the 
sale  ofFire  Works, 

I  have  granted  17  Wholesale  Permits,   at  $50  each $    850.00 

109  Retail  Permits,  at  $10  each .•  1,090.00 

Making  a  Total  of $1,940.00 

One-half  of  which  has  been  turned  over  to  the  License  Collector  and  the 
other  half  to  the  Treasurer  of  the  Charitable  Fund  of  the  Fire  Department, 
and  receipts  taken  for  the  same  by  the  Secretary  of  the  Board  of  Fire 
Wardens. 

BECOMMENDA1IONS. 

I  again  renew  my  recommendation  for  a  full  paid  Fire  Department,  at 
least  in  the  business  portion  of  the  city. 

The  experience  of  Seattle,  W.  T.,  Durango,  Col.,  Hailey,  I.  T..  Ellens- 
burg,  W.  T..  Bakersfield,  Cal.,  and  Fresno,  Cal.,  should  be  a  sufficient  warn- 
ing to  this  city  of  the  necessity  of  increasing  the  Fire  Department. 

The  appropriation  for  the  ensuing  fiscal  year  is  the  same  amount  as  in 
1878,  and  I  can  say,  I  think  with  safely,  that  the  city  has  increased  during 
the  last  eleven  years  at  least  one-third  larger. 

The  Western  Addition  and  Commerfordville  has  lately  been  built  up  with 
fine  residences,  and  are  greatly  in  need  of  fire  protection,  but  the  appropria- 
tion of  money  for  salaries  of  the  Department  is  not  sufficient  to  pay  the 
present  force  of  the  Department  for  the  year. 


CHIEF  ENGINEER'S  REPORT.  163 

It  is  also  essentially  necessary  that  more  Hydrants  be  set  in  the  Western 
Addition,  Commerfordville  and  south  of  Market  street. 

The  fire  of  September  9th  last  proves  conclusively  that  the  appropriation 
for  running  expenses  and  material  should  be  increased  sufficiently  to  allow 
the  purchase  of  at  least  10,000  feet  of  Hose,  to  be  stored  in  the  Corporation 
Yard  in  case  of  a  large  conflagration. 

I  also  recommend  that  a  suitable  building  to  be  used  as  a  stable  be  erected 
on  some  lot  belonging  to  the  Department  for  the  keeping  of  relief  horses  and 
forage. 

The  stable  now  used  is  in  a  remote  part  of  the  city,  a  long  distance  from 
the  center,  and  requires  considerable  time  to  send  horses  or  forage  therefrom 
when  required  by  the  different  companies. 

I  suggest  that  the  stable  be  moved  and  the  building  be  altered  so  as  to  in- 
crease the  capacity  of  the  Repair  Shop,  where  all  work  necessary  for  the  re- 
pair of  the  apparatus  can  be  done  with  great  facility. 

In  closing  this  Report,  I  desire  to  tender  my  thanks  to  the  Honorable 
Board  of  Fire  Commissioners  for  the  active  interest  you  have  manifested  in 
all  matters  pertaining  to  the  success  of  the  Department,  and  I  desire  also  to 
thank  the  officers  and  members  of  the  force  for  the  alacrity  manifested  on  all 
occasions  in  complying  with  my  orders. 

I  also  desire  to  express  my  thanks  to  his  Honor  Mayor  Pond  and  the  Board 
Supervisors  for  the  interest  they  have  manifested  in  all  business  pertaining 
to  the  Department. 

To  the  Chief  of  Police  and  members  of  his  force,  to  Fire  Marshal  Charles 
Towe,  to  Captain  White  and  Lieutenant  O'Kell  of  the  Fire  Patrol,  and  to 
Superintendent  Rankin,  Fire  Alaxm  Telegraph,  I  am  under  many  obligations 
for  the  manner  in  which  they  have  assisted  the  Department  in  the  discharge 
of  their  duties  on  all  occasions. 

Respectfully  submitted, 

DAVID  SCANNELL, 

Chief  of  Fire  Department.

BATTEBIE3. 

There  are  now  in  use  202  gravity  cells,  150  electropoion,  13  Fuller  and 
7  Leclanche. 

WIRES. 

The  Department  is  now  operating  one  hundred  and  fifty-five  miles  of 
wire,  the  number  of  circuits  remaining  the  same  as  last  year — 13  signal,  7 
alarm  and  2  Tapper  circuits. 


EXTENSIONS. 


Both  Tapper  circuits  have  been  extended  and  changed  into  metallic  cir- 
cuits, thereby  giving  much  better  service.  Other  circuits  have  been  rempved 
from  housetops  and  placed  on  poles,  a  number  of  long  loops  have  been 
straightened  out,  and  the  work  of  overhauling  the  system  generally  and 
placing  it  in  first-class  condition  has  been  carried  on  as  rapidly  as  possible. 

There  is  still  much  work  to  be  done  before  winter.  Nearly  all  the  boxes 
and  many  poles  should  be  painted;  also  quite  a  number  of  unsound  poles 
replaced.  This  work  necessitates  the  employment  of  several  extra  men. 

I  would  recommend  that  the  repair  force  be  permanently  increased  by 
the  addition  of  one  man,  and  also  renew  my  recommendation  that  the  oper- 
atiag  force  be  increased  to  four  men.

REVIEW. 

There  was  pending  at  the  commencement  of  the  fiscal  year  (exclusive  of 
street  assessment  cases,  of  which  there  are  now  about  415  still  pending),  313 
cases  in  which  the  City  and  County  or  its  officers  were  parties.  Since  that 
time  94  new  cases  have  been  brought  against  the  City  and  its  officers.  In 
.  the  same  period  55  cases  have  been  tried  in  the  various  Courts,  four  of  which 
were  tried  by  special  counsel  on  behalf  of  the  City  and  County,  and  61  by 
myself.  Thirty-nine  of  the  cases  so  tried  by  me  were  decided  in  favor  of  the 
City  and  County,  and  10  decided  against  it.  Four  cases  were  settled  by 
order  of  Board  of  Supervisors,  and  two  dismissed. 

There  are  now  pending  in  the  various  Courts  352  cases  (exclusive  o 
street  assessment  casea),  of  which  those  involving  claims  againt  the  City  are 
as  follows: 

For  grading  streets,  etc '. $351,105  94 

For  damages  for  alleged  nuisances,  defective  sewers,  etc 259,639  44 

For  various  claims,  rents,  salaries,  etc 195,020  48 

For  the  destruction  of  property'  by  the  riot  of  1877 2,000  00 

The  remainder  are  principally  suits  to  quiet  title  to  lands,  etc. 

These  suits,  in  which  the  City  and  County  are  plaintiffs,  are  mostly  for 
the  recovery  of  lands  of  great  value,  held  in  adverse  possession;  also  for  the 
recovery  of  money,  etc. 

Tery  respectfully, 

GEORGE  FLOURNOY,  JB,,

HEALTH  OFFICER'S  REPORT. 


SAN  FBANCISCO,  July  1,  1889. 

To  the  Honorable  the  Board  of  Supervisors 

Of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN:  I  have  the  honor  to  submit  to  you  my  report  of  the  trans- 
actions of  the  Health  Office  for  the  fiscal  year  ending  June  30,  1889: 

The  deaths  for  the  year  in  this  city  numbered  5,729,  against  6,036  for  the 
preceding  year.  Of  these  559  were  Chinese,  and  5,170  of  other  nationalities. 

Estimating  the  pdpulation  of  this  city  at  330,000,  the  death  rate  was  17.36 
per  1,000  inhabitants,  against  18.27  per  1,000  last  year. 

The  death  rate  amongst  the  Chinese  population  of  30,000  was  18,63 
per  1,000. 

Estimating  the  population  of  other  nationalities  at  300,000,  the  death  rate 
was  17.23  per  1,000. 

The  deaths  from  the  principal  diseases  were  as  follows:

The  following  items  of  interest,  and  transactions  of  importance  by  the 
Board  of  Health,  have  occurred  since  my  last  report  of  July  1,  1888: 


MEDICAL   INSPECTOBAT   HONGKONG. 


In  the  month  of  last  July  there  were  alarming  reports  of  the  prevalence 


HEALTH   OFFICER'S  REPORT.  325 

of  cholera  in  Hongkong  and  other  Chinese  ports.  Every  precaution  was 
taken  here,  and  the  city  was  fortunate  in  escaping  a  visitation  of  this  disease. 
In  view  of  the  difficulty  of  obtaining  trustworthy  information  from  China, 
the  Board  of  Health  passed  the  following  resolution : 

Resolved,  That  in  view  of  the  frequent  epidemicsjof  cholera  and  smallpox,  and  the  proba- 
bility that  cholera,  smallpox  and  typhous  fever  are  endemic  at  Hongkong  and  other  Chinese 
ports,  and  the  frequent  contradictions  and  total  unreliability  of  the  reports  received  by  us  in 
relation  to  the  existence  of  these  diseases,  that  the  Surgeon- General  of  the  U.  S.  Marine  Hos- 
pital Service  be  requested  to  appoint  and  maintain  a  Medical  Inspector  at  Hongkong,  whose 
sole  business  shall  be  to  report  on  the  existence  of  these  diseases. 

A  resolution  was  also  passed  ordering  "that  no  person  affected  with  any 
infectious  disease  shall  be  allowed  to  land  in  this  city." 

Correspondence  has  passed  between  the  Surgeon-General  and  this  office, 
but  so  far  nothing  has  been  accomplished  toward  the  appointment  of  an 
Inspector. 

WATEB   AT   NOBTH   BEACH   BATHS. 

In  August  there  was  much  discussion  in  the  press  as  to  the  reported  un- 
healthy condition  of  the  water  in  the  bathing  establishment  at  North  Beach. 
The  Board  caused  the  water  to  be  examined  by  exports,  who  reported  "  that 
there  was  nothing  injurious  in  the  water,  and  nothing  indicative  of  contami- 
nation that  would  be  in  the  least  degree  injurious  td  health  for  bathing 
purposes." 

DISEASED    CATTLE. 

In  October  Mr.  A.  S.  Mercer,  an  agent  of  the  Bureau  of  Animal  Industry, 
at  Washington,  reported  that  he  had  found  a  large  number  of  cattle  dying  of 
Texas  fever  in  the  Salinas  valley,  and  that  anthrax  was  prevalent  at  Gonzales 
and  in  other  parts  of  the  State.  The  Board  of  Health  at  once  appointed!  a 
Veterinary  Surgeon  and  two  additional  Market  Inspectors  "to  prevent  the 
importation  into,  and  sale  of,  diseased  meat  in  this  city."  Your  Honorable 
Body  kindly  co-operated  by  allowing  liberal  salaries  to  these  officials,  and' the 
result  has  been  the  condemnation  and  exclusion  of  large  numbers  of  diseased 
cattle  and  a  vigorous  application  of  sanitary  measuresln  the  slaughter-houses 
atButchertown.  I  have  found  the  butchers  quite  willing  to  assist  in  the 
-enforcement  of  the  rules  of  the  Board  of  Health,  and  consequently  the 
slaughter-houses  are  in  a  much  better  sanitary  condition  than  formerly,  and 
few  diseased  cattle  are  now  brought  to  the  city. 

TANNERIES. 

There  having  been  many  complaints  made  at  this  office  regarding  the 
tanneries  at  the  Mission,  the  Board  passed  a  resolution  "  that  the  floors  of 
these  tanneries  be  made  water-tight  and  be  coated  with  asphaltum  up  to  the 
edges  of  the  vats,  that  they  drain  directly  into  the  street  sewer,  and  that  the 
ground  under  the  floors  be  covered  with  six  inches  of  clean  sand."  This 
rule  was  carried  out,  and  there  have  been  no  further  complaints. 


326  HEALTH   OFFICER'S   REP  OUT1.. 

AMBULANCE. 

In  December,  at  the  request  of  the  Board  of  Health,  an  ambulance  was- 
furnished  by  your  Honorable  Board  for  the  purpose  of  transporting  persons 
injured  in  the  streets,  or  elsewhere,  to  their  homes  or  to  the  Receiving  Hos- 
pital for  treatment.  An  ambulance  service  has  long  been  a  pressing  need  in 
this  city,  and  I  trust  that  means  may  be  found  to  place  it  in  full  operation. 

BILL   FOB   ADDITIONAL   INSPECTORS. 

In  February  of  the  present  year,  at  the  instance  of  the  Board  of  Health, 
a  bill  was  introduced  into  the  Legislature  providing  for  additional  Health 
and  Market  Inspectors.  City  authorities  were  to  be  enabled  to  appoint  two 
Health  Inspectors  for  a  population  of  50,000,  and  one  for  each  35,000  in- 
habitants in  excess  of  50>000.  Also  one  Market  Inspector  for  50,000  inhabi- 
tants, and  one  for  each  40,000  in  excess  of  that  number.  This  bill,  however, 
failed  to  become  law. 

EISINFECTOB. 

The  apparatus  for  the  disinfection  of  clothing,  bedding,  etc.,  is  now 
ready  to  be  erected  at  the  City  and  County  Hospital,  or  in  some  other  fitting 
locality.  When  it  is  completed  articles  maybe  sent  from  houses  where  cases 
of  smallpox,  diphtheria  or  any  other  infectious  disease  may  have  occurred, 
and  returned  after  thorough  disinfection.  This  d.sinfector  will  fill  a  want 
long  felt  in  this  city,  where  the  clothing  and  bedding  of  patients  affected 
with  smallpox  have  been  frequently  destroyed  to  prevent  contagion,  thorough  , 
disinfection  not  being  possible. 

G ABB AGE. 

In  my  last  report  I  mentioned  the  dangers  that  might  occur  from  the 
practice  of  dumping  the  city's  garbage  at  the  foot  of  Sixth  street.  I  again 
strongly  recommend  that  steps  be  taken  toward  building  a  crematory,  or 
disposing  of  the  garbage  in  some  other  manner  than  that  now  in  use. 


The  sewerage  system  of  the  [city  is  being  vigorously  extended  by  the 
Street  Department.  The  Superintendent  of  Streets,  Mr.  Ashworth,  has  co- 
operated with  me  on  all  occasions  by  carrying  out  my  recommendations  for 
new  sewers.  A  great  improvement  is  visible  south  of  the  Mission,  where 
the  Boar  1  of  Health  has  been  particularly  active  in  enforcing  sanitary  reg- 
ulations. 

CHINESE    QUABTEB. 

Attention  has  also  been  paid  to  the  condition  of  the  Chinese  quarter. 
When  a  house  has  been  found  in  an  offensive  condition,  it  has  been  ordered 
vacated  until  thoroughly  cleaned,  whitened,  and  the  plumbing  and  drainage 
made  to  agree  with  the  regulations  of  the  Board  of  Health.  Twenty-three 
houses  have  been  treated  in  this  manner  in  Chinatown  this  year,  and  I 
believe  that  by  a  gradual  enforcement  of  these  rules  this  quarter  may  be 
placed  in  as  good  a  sanitary  condition  as  any  other  part  of  the  city.

On  July  1st  a  man  from  Bethany,  in  this  State,  came  to  the  city  with 
confluent  smallpox  and  died.  He  does  not  appear  to  have  infected  any  one, 
as  the  next  case  did  not  occur  until  August  22d,  also  a  man  from  the  country. 
Between  that  date  and  August  31st,  thirteen  cases  occurred;  in  September 
twenty-four  cases,  and  the  disease  was  then  more  or  less  prevalent  until 
February  1st,  when  it  appeared  to  have  entirely  disappeared  from  the  city. 
In  March  more  cases  began  to  come  in  from  the  country.  On  the  4th,  one 
from  Marin  county;  on  the  16th,  one  from  Portland;  on  the  24th,  one  from 
Sacramento.  In  April  there  was  one  case,  direct  from  Colorado.  In  May 
three  cases  occurred — on  the  3d  that  of  a  man  who  had  been  handling  sugar 
on  a  foreign  vessel,  and  two  cases  from  the  country,  one  on  the  4th  and  one 
on  the  27th.  With«regard  to  this  last  case,  when  the  case  was  discovered 
the  man  was  nearly  well.  He  had  been  in  the  city  a  week,  living  in  a  crowded 
lodging-house,  daily  walking  the  streets  and  mingling  with  the  people.  No 
evil  results  seem  to  have  occurred.  There  have  been  no  new  cases  of  small- 
pox, and  it  either  shows  that  vaccination  is  very  general  or  that  climatic 
conditions  are  not  at  present  favorable  to  the  spread  of  the  disease.

CITY  PHYSICIAN'S  REPORT. 


SAN  FBANCISCO,  July  15,  1889. 

To  the  Honorable  the  Board  of  Supervisors 

Of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN:  Under  the  provisions  of  the  law  (Resolution  2213,  Third 
Series),  it  becomes  my  duty  and  pleasure  to  submit  my  repoit  for  the  fiscal 
year  ending  June  30,  1889,  which  I  herewith  enclose. 

The  County  Jail  is  in  a  very  good  hygienic  condition,  considering  its 
crowded  state.  The  number  of  prisoners  on  June  30,  1889,  was  193.  There 
are  very  few  patients  in  the  jail  at  present,  and  all  of  them  contracted  their 
ailments  prior  to  their  imprisonment.  The  diseases  are  mostly  venereal  and 
local. 

The  establishing  of  a  Receiving  Hospital  last  March,  by  your  Honorable 
Body,  filled  a  much  needed  want  of  the  City.  The  fitting  up  of  the  second 
floor  for  female  patients  is  a  necessity,  and  I  would  respectfully  request  the 
Board  to  give  this  matter  their  consideration.  I  would  also  request  the 
Board  to  furnish  the  necessary  surgical  instruments  and  appliances,  as  it  is 
quite  impossible  to  do  the  work  properly  without  them.  The  small  sum  of 
$350  will,  I  think,  purchase  all  that  is  absolutely  needed. 

During  the  six  months  ending  June  30,  1889,  th?re  were  1,026  cases  at- 
tended at  the  County  Jail,  and  378  indigent  poor  prescribed  for. 

It  appears  that  from  June  30,  1888,  to  December  31,  1888,  no  record  was 
kept  nor  reports  made  of  the  cases  attended  at  the  County  Jail  and  those  of 
the  indigent  poor  by  Dr.  Blach,  who  occupied  the  position  of  City  Physician 
during  that  time. 

The  number  of  cases  treated  at  the  Receiving  Hospital  and  City  Prison 
during  the  year  ending  June  30,  1889,  was  4,394. 

I  enclose  the  report  of  the  Assistant  City  Physician. 
Respectfully, 

ROBERT  E.  WILLIAMS, 
City  Physician  and  Police  Surgeon.

To  the  Honorable  the  Board  of  Supervisors

GENTLEMEN:    I  have  the  honor  of   presenting  for  your  consideration  my 
annual  report  for  the  fiscal  year  ending  June  30,  1889: 

Of  the  several  societies  having  burial   plots  in   the   City  Cemetery,  there 
have  be<n  interr-d,  as  follows:

There  has  been  expended  for  head-boards $231  63 

I  would  respectfully  call  the  attention  of  your  Honorable  Body  to  the 
condition  of  the  fences  enclosing  the  cemetery.  In  places  they  are  worn  out 
and  down  so  much  that  cattle  have  free  access  to  the  cemetery.  I  invite 
your  particular  attention  to  the  Pioneer  plot.  The  fences  enclosing  the 
groun  Js  are  almost  entirely  gone,  and  the  plot  is  in  a  most  deplorable  c(indi- 
tion.  I  would  suggest  that  there  be  a  good  picket  fence  erected,  and  trees 
and  hedges  planted  around  the  plot,  and  there  be  a  general  renovation  of  the 
premises. 

Several  of  the  societies  who  have  been  granted  burial  plots  by  the  city  in 
the  City  Cemetery  have  neglected  the  same.  I  would  suggest  to  your  Hon- 
orable Body  that  in  justice  to  those  who  do  keep  their  grounds  in  order,  that 
the  others  be  required  to  do  the  same. 

The  books  containing  the  records  of  the  interments  and  disintermenta 
should  be  kept  in  a  safe  that  they  may  not  be  destroyed  by  fire.  The  cottage 
(in  which  is  the  office)  and  its  surroundings,  also  the  tank  and  pump,  are  very 
much  in  need  of  immediate  repairs. 

Very  respectfully, 

THOMAS  E.\GAB, 
Superintendent  of  City  and  County  Cemetery.

404  HOSPITAL  REPORT. 


APOTHECARY'S   REPORT. 


SAN  FBANCISCO,  July  26,  1889. 
DR.  J.  H.  HBALT,  Sup't  Physician  City  and  County  Hospital : 

DEAD  SIB:  I  herewith  submit  the  report  of  the  Drug  Department  for  the 
fiscal  year  ending  June  30th,  1889,  together  with  an  itemized  account  of  all 
surgical  instruments  purchased  during  the  year,  with  their  prices. 

I  also  submit  a  few  comments  on  the  condition  of  this  department  at  the 
time  of  assuming  charge  of  it,  July  1st  inst. 

In  handing  in  this,  my  first  report  of  the  Drug  Department  of  the 
Hospital,  I  deem  it  proper  to  acquaint  you  with  its  condition  at  the  time  of 
assuming  its  management,  and  beg  to  say  that  the  delay  in  placing  the  report 
in  your  hands  is  due  to  the  incomplete  condition  in  which  I  found  the  books 
and  accounts. 

Total  absence  of  any  kind  of  system  was  conspicuously  noticeable  all 
over  the  department;  all  the  rooms  being  in  great  disorder,  and  the  floors, 
walls,  counters,  tables,  shelves  and  cupboards  covered  with  dirt  and  filth. 

Many  drugs  and  chemicals  were  found  in  out-of-the-way  places  where 
their  existence  was  plainly  not  suspected. 

In  the  cellar  store-room,  a  place  entirely  unfitted  for  storage  of  perishable 
goods,  was  found  a  considerable  quantity  of  stock  more  or  less  injured,  a 
portion  being  entirely  unfit  for  use;  the  room  itself  being  unspeakably  filthy. 
In  all  my  experience  I  have  never  seen  Drugstore  or  Dispensary  in  such  a 
demoralized  condition. 

The  system  of  keeping  the  books  and  accounts  seems  to  me  to  have  been 
very  imperfect — the  one  in  use  not  even  being  adhered  to. 

I  am  glad  to  say  that  out  of  a  state  of  utter  chaos  is  coming  some  degree 
of  order;  the  work  being  greatly  retarded,  however,  by  a  lack  of  help,  my 
assistant,  Mr.  Day,  and  myself  doing  most  of  the  rough  work,  as  well  as  the 
manufacturing  at  intervals  when  not  not  pressed  with  regular  daily  work. 

Respectfully  yours, 

L.  C.  WAGNER, 

Apothecary.

The  appropriation  for  Almshouse  expenses  for  1888-89  was  $80,000. 
The  amount  paid  out  from  the  City  and  County  Treasury  was  $77,302.88; 
consequently  there  was  a  surplus  of  $2,697.12  remaining  at  the  close  of  the 
fiscal  year. 

The  past  year  has  served  to  confirm  the  impression   I   have   previously 


440  ALMSHOUSE  REPORT. 

expressed,  that  the  number  of  inmates  drifting  to  the  Almshouse  will  steadily 
increase  from  year  to  year,  owing  principally  to  the  fact  that  -the  City  and 
County  Hospital  transfers  all  its  incurable  convalescents  to  the  Institution . 
Most  of  these  people  are  paralytics,  cripples  or  consumptives,  who  come  to 
remain.  They  are  unable  to  do  any  kind  of  work,  many  of  them  being 
perfectly  helpless. 

All  the  inmates,  both  male  and  female,  who  were  capable  of  work,  have 
been  employed,  their  labor  being  utilized  wherever  it  would  be  most  useful; 
mechanics  at  their  trades,  and  others  on  the  farm,  in  the  gardens,  bakery, 
laundry,  stables,  dining-rooms,  etc,,  etc.  The  female  inmates  have  as  usual 
been  employed  in  the  sewing-room,  or  scrubbing  floors,  washing,  house- 
cleaning,  etc.,  all  able  to  work  doing  something. 

The  roads  in  the  neighborhood  have  been  kept  in  good  condition,  and  the 
buildings,  inside  and  out,  have  had  men  constantly  at  work  on  them,  paint- 
ing, whitening  and  repairing,  so  that  they  have  at  all  times  presented  a  neat 
and  attractive  appearance. 

The  sanitary  condition  of  the  buildings  has  been  a  subject  of  constant 
care  and  attention.  The  sewers  have  been  flushed  weekly  and  disinfectants 
used  at  all  times,  so  that  while  each  building  has  its  share  of  bad  cases, 
nothing  of  an  offensive  nature  has  been  experienced. 

The  crops  on  the  farm  this  season  have  not  been  a  success,  owing  to  the 
blight  which  periodically  visits  this  locality  having  attacked  the  potatoes 
when  half -grown,  and  the  prolonged  foggy  weather  preventing  the  oats  for 
hay  from  properly  heading  out  and  ripening.  Our  supply  of  milk  has  been 
up  to  the  requirements  of  the  Institution,  from  which  a  large  portion  of  the 
butter  used  has  been  made. 

Religious  services  have  continued  as  formerly,  nearly  every  denomination 
being  represented,  and  my  thanks  are  hereby  tendered  to  the  priesthood  of 
the  Mission  Dolores  Church  for  their  prompt  attention  to  the  spiritual  wel- 
fare of  the  Catholic  portion  of  the  inmates. 

My  thanks  are  also  due  to  Rev.  Mr.  Drummond  and  Rev.  W.  J.  O'Brien, 
of  the  Episcopal  Church,  also  to  Rev.  James  Campbell,  for  their  faithful  and 
unwearying  devotion  to  those  of  the  Protestant  faith.. 

My  grateful  acknowledgments  are  also  tendered  to  those  kind-hearted, 
thoughtful  citizens  who  have  from  time  to  time  furnished  reading  matter  for 
use  of  the  inmates.  They  are  too  numerous  to  name,  and  many  of  them 
unknown. 

My  thanks  are  also  due  to  all  who  helped  contribute  so  bountiful  a  sup- 
ply of  toys  and  candy  for  the  Almshou.se  children  at  Christmas.  In  this 
connection  I  wish  to  return  thanks  to  the  late  City  and  County  Grand  Jury, 
of  which  F.  S.  Chadbourne,  Esq.,  was  Chairman,  for  the  generous  donation 
of  $67  to  be  used  for  the  benefit  of  the  Almshouse  children . 

During  the  year  1888-89  I  have  received  from  the  State  under  the  "Act 
to  appropriate  money  for  support  of  aged  persons  in  indigent  circumstances, "" 


ALMSHOUSE  REPORT.  441 

the  sum  of  $31,699.68.  I  have  also  received  from  the  same  source,  under 
the  "Act  to  appropriate  money  for  support  of  orphan,  half-orphan  and 
abandoned  children,"  $1,546.05,  or  a  total  of  $33,245.73.  This  amount  has 
been  duly^paid  into  the  City  and  County  Treasury. 

The  total  amount  received  from  the  State  of  California  under  these  two 
acts  to  this  date  is  $170,138  63;  thus  relieving  the  tax-payers  of  the  City  and 
County  to  that  amount  on  account  of  Alnishouse  expenses. 

The  Auditor's  figures  give  the  amount  paid  out  of  the  City  and  County 
Treasury  for  the  year  ending  June  30,  1889,  on  account  of  the  Almshouse,  as 
$77,302.88;  deducting  therefrom  the  amount  I  have  returned  to  said  Treasury, 
received  from  sales  of  Almshouse  property,  viz:  $1,440.47,  and  $33,245.73 
received  from  the  State,  the  actual  depletion  of  the  City  and  County  Treas- 
ury on  account  of  Almshouse  expenses  has  been  $42,616.68. 

From  the  opening  of  the  Almshouse  to  the  present  time  11,231  inmates 
have  been  admitted  and  provided  with  a  comfortable  home  through  the  gen- 
erous charity  of  the  people  of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco. 

Sincerely  thanking  your  Honorable  Body  and  the  Hospital  Committee  of 
the  Honorable  Board  of  Supervisors  for  your  and  their  kind  co-operation 
and  support,  this  report  is  most  respectfully  submitted. 

M.  J.  KEATING, 

Superintendent  City  and  County  Almshouse. 
San  Francisco,  July  1,  1889. 


REPORT  OF  THE  BOARD  OF  TRUSTEES 


San  Francisco  Free  Public  Library. 


To  the  Honorable  the  Board  of  Supervisors 

Of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco  ; 

GENTLEMEN:  The  Board  of  Trustees  of  the  San  Francisco  Free  Public 
Library  respectfully  submit  to  your  honorable  body,  as  required  by  law, 
their  annual  report  for  the  fiscal  year  ending  June  30,  1889. 

It  is  very  gratifying  to  the  Trustees  to  be  able  to  say  that  the  Library 
committed  to  their  charge  has  made  during  the  past  year  very  marked  prog- 
ress, and  that  its  general  condition  is  now  much  better  than  at  any  previous 
period  of  its  history.  Its  utility  and  efficiency  as  a  factor  in  the  education 
and  enlightenment  of  the  people  are  constantly  increasing  and  becoming 
more  and  more  generally  recognized  and  appreciated. 

The  removal  of  the  Library  to  its  present  location  in  the  New  City  Hall 
was  a  most  wise  and  beneficial  step,  and  the  results  of  it  have  more  than 
justified  and  compensated  the  expenditure  of  money,  time  and  trouble  neces- 
sary to  bring  it  about.  It  has  put  the  books  in  a  place  of  almost  perfect 
security.  It  has  supplied  the  patrons  of  the  Library  with  better 
lighted  and  more  comfortable  reading-rooms;  and  it  has  made  the 
Library  more  accessible  to  those  for  whose  benefit  it  was  established.  The 
Librarian  reports  that  in  the  new  reading-rooms  there  are  fewer  idlers  than 
there  were  in  the  old,  and  a  larger  number  of  mechanics  and  students  of  the 
•useful  arts  and  trades. 

There  is,  however,  one  very  serious  deficiency  connected  with  the  present 
location  of  the  Library — a  deficiency  of  room.  There  is  not  room  enough  to 
place  all  the  books  at  a  convenient  elevation  so  as  to  be  readily  accessible. 
As  a  necessary  consequence  of  this,  many  valuable  works,  which  are  in  great 
demand,  are  on  shelves  so  high  above  the  main  floor  of  the  Library  as  to  im- 
pose severe  labor  upon  those  whose  duty  it  is  to  deliver  books  to  the  patrons, 
^ind  to  entail  vexatious  but  unavoidable  delay  in  the  service.  This,  it  will 
be  readily  perceived,  is  no  slight  impediment  to  the  efficiency  of  the  Library. 

As  has  been  shown  in  previous  reports  of  the  Board  of  Trustees  to  your 
predecessors  in  office,  San  Francisco  has  always  lagged  behind  other  cities  in 
the  United  States  in  the  financial  support  given  to  her  Free  Public  Library. 
Many  far  smaller  cities  have  regularly  made  annual  appropriations  twice  as 
large  as  those  of  San  Francisco  for  the  support  of  their  free  libraries.  And

yet  there  is  perhaps  no  city  in  the  Union  in  which  the  advantages  of  such  an 
institution  are  more  keenly  appreciated  or  more  eagerly  sought  by  the  people 
than  in  this,  all  things  considered.  It  is  difficult  to  account  for  or  excuse 
this  unwise  parsimony.  The  public  press  of  the  city  has  uniformly  favored 
liberal  appropriations  for  this  library.  The  people  demand  them.  The  city 
is  abundantly  able  to  afford  them.  The  Library  needs  them,  needs  them 
sorely.  And  yet,  to  our  shame  be  it  said,  they  have  not  been  forthcoming. 

The  present  Board  of  Supervisors,  however,  has  this  year  shown  a  mani- 
fest and  very  commendable  disposition  to  pursue  a  more  liberal  policy  toward 
this  most  important  and  most  deserving  institution,  and  this  policy  has  been 
very  efficiently  and  warmly  supported  by  Mr.  Auditor  Strother,  whose  ap- 
preciation of  the  Library  and  of  its  value  to  all  classes  of  our  people  has  been 
constant  and  practical. 

,For  several  years  the  appropriation  for  the  Library  has  been  so  small  that 
barely  enough  was  given  for  the  necessary  and  ordinary  expenses.  The 
Trustees  have  not  been  able  to  purchase  books  to  any  extent,  and  have  not 
been  able  to  keep  up  with  the  important  publications  of  the  day  even  in  the 
mechanical  arts,  to  say  nothing  of  those  in  literature  and  the  other  arts  and 
sciences—  although  perhaps  in  no  other  period  of  the  world's  history  have 
there  been  such  important  investigations,  developments  and  discoveries  in 
the  arts  and  sciences.  It  is  of  the  greatest  importance  that  the  student,  the 
mechanic  and  the  artisan  of  to-day  should  have  in  our  Library,  ready  to  his 
hand  and  available  to  his  use,  the  latest  publications  upon  the  subject  which 
is  connected  with  his  own  individual  success  in  life.  If  this  is  to  be  accom- 
plished and  our  Library  is  to  have  the  same  efficiency  as  other  public  libraries 
in  other  cities  of  the  country,  the  appropriations  must  still  be  considerably 
increased  to  correspond  with  what  other  cities  are  doing.  This,  we  feel 
assured,  will  ultimately  be  done.  It  will  be  but  bare  justice  to  the  toiling 
but  bookless  thousands  whose  labor  has  been  and  ever  will  be  the  potent 
force  in  creating  the  wealth  of  this  great  city. 

That  the  Library  has  urgent  needs  ought  not  to  be  misunderstood.  There 
are  many  broken  sets  of  valuable  works  and  many  sets  entirely  wanting. 
Some  important  branches  of  literature  are  meagerly  represented,  and  there 
are  serious  deficiencies  in  all  branches.  These  we  we  will,  at  the  proper 
time,  ask  your  honorable  body  to  supply  so  far  as  you  are  able  to  appro- 
priate the  necessary  funds. 

It  gives  us  pleasure  to  praise  the  ability,  great  industry,  and  uniform 
courtesy  and  good  nature  in  dealing  with  the  public  of  our  Librarian,  and 
the  general  efficiency,  good  conduct  and  fidelity  of  all  pur  assistants  and 
employes. 

The  verified  financial  exhibit  of  the  Secretary,  the  list  of  gifts  to  the 
Library  for  the  year,  and  the  Librarian's  report,  with  its  various  appendixes, 
are  herewith  submitted  and  respectfully  commended  to  the  attention  of  your 
honorable  body. 

THOS.  B.  BISHOP, 

By  order  of  the  Board.  President .

THE  FREE  PUBLIC  LIBRARY,  449 

ANNUAL  REPORT  OF  THE  LIBRARIAN. 

To  the  Trustees  of  the  Free  Public  Library.- 

'.  GENTLEMEN:  I  have  the  honor  to  submit  my  report  for  the  year  ending  June  30, 1889,  with 
appendixes  of  statistics.  Our  rooms  in  the  New  City  Hall  have  proved  attractive  to  a  very 
desirable  class  of  readers ;  there  being  few  idlers  among  them,  and  an  increased  number  of 
mechanics  and  students  of  the  useful  arts  and  trades. 

The  Supplementary  Catalogue  (No.  5),  the  manuscript  of  which  was  reported  to  you,  a  year 
ago,  as  ready  for  the  printer,  has  been  published,  and  the  general  commendation  accorded  it 
not  only  justifies  the  departure,  but  incites  to  further  effort  on  like  lines  of  improvement.  The 
encouragement  comes  timely,  for  we  have  now  before  us  the  task  of  re-cataloguing  the  volumes 
in  the  Library  not  entered  in  the  supplementary  work,  together  with  such  volumes  as  shall  be 
purchased  before  Catalogue  No.  6  goes  to  press.  This  purchase  should  be  liberal  and  made  im- 
mediately, for  without  an  early  expenditure  that  shall  complete  our  many  broken  sets  and 
supply  the  serious  deficencies  of  our  various  departments,  the  publication  of  so  tedious  and 
costly  a  work  will  be  a  waste  of  time  and  money.  For  several  years  past  the  additions  to  the 
Library,  as  you  are  well  aware,  have  been  very  few.  In  plain  truth,  we  have  not  books  enough 
to  justify  the  preparation  of  a  first-class  catalogue,  and  a  second-class  catalogue  is  rarely,  if  ever, 
justifiable.  As  shown  in  the  figures  of  my  report  last  year,  the  number  of  volumes  in  the 
Library  was  much  less  than  previous  figures  indicated.  The  number  by  count  last  year,  ex- 
elusive  of  pamphlets,  was  49,475.  But  of  these  12,052  were  duplicates;  so  that  the  number  of 
volumes,  exclusive  of  both  pamphlets  and  duplicates,  was  only  37,423.  To  this  small  number 
we  have  added  during  the  year  3,364  volnmes  and  1,832  pamphlets  (1,417  volumes  and  1,741 
pamphlets  being  gifts),  so  that  the  present  showing  in  bound  volumes  is  40,787.  These  figures, 
for  the  Public  Library  of  a  rich  city  of  at  least  300,000  inhabitants,  are,  perhaps,  argument 
enough  in  themselves  for  an  immediate  and  liberal  purchase  of  books.  Were  it  not  that  the 
old  catalogues  will  be  worn  out  by  the  time  a  new  one  can  be  issued,  imperfect  as  the  old 
catalogues  are,  it  would  be  better  to  hold  to  them  for  several  years  yet.  However,  the  old 
catalogues  will  soon  be  gone,  and  a  new  catalogue  must  be  made ;  a  new  one,  certainly  not 
inferior  in  workmanship  to  the  supplementary  work  just  published.  This  means  a  large  outlay, 
which,  as  the  vigilant  President  of  the  Book  Committee  has  so  often  stated,  can  be  made 
economical  only  by  a  large  purchase  of  books  before  the  catalogue  copy  is  begun.  At  an  early 
date  I  shall  have  the  honor  to  lay  before  you  details  concerning  the  new  catalogue  which  I 
deem  of  first  importance  in  the  work  of  the  coming  year,  and  for  which  there  is  not  space  in 
this  report. 

Our  appropriation— thanks  to  an  auspicious  awakening  of  interest  in  the  Library — has  been 
again  increased;  incidental  expenses  will  be  less  this  year  than  heretofore;  the  purchase  recom- 
mended is,  therefore,  possible,  needing  only  your  approval. 

One  hundred  dollars  per  month,  and  that  format  six  months,  was  all  at  your  disposal  at 
any  time  during  the  past  year  for  the  purchase  of  current  publications,  and  for  such  purchases 
as  must  be  made  without  delay  if  the  Library  would  take  advantage  of  special  offers  of  books 
at  low  prices.  I  would  suggest  an  increase  of  the  monthly  allowance  for  this  purpose. 

But  the  purchase  of  books  is  not  all;  room  must  be  made  for  them,  as  well  as  for  our 
readers.  The  internal  working  of  the  Library  is,  perhaps,  as  satisfactory  as  it  can  be  in  our 
present  rooms,  which  necessitate  the  placing  of  the  books  so  high,  up  so  many  stairs,  and  so 
far  away  from  the  delivery  desk,  that  the  physical  labor  of  bringing  them  down  is  altogether 
too  great.  It  causes  delay  in  delivery,  and  is  a  hardship  for  the  strongest  boys  in  the  messen- 
ger service. 

Provision  being  made  for  room  and  books,  sufficient  skilled  labor  must  be  employed  to 
make  a  full  and  ready  exhibit  of  the  contents  of  the  books.  Whatever  expenditure  be  made 
for  books  and  room,  it  will  avail  little  if  there  be  lacking  a  sufficient  and  permanent  cataloguing 
force. 

The  quiet  behavior  and  the  studious  habits  'of  the  public  that  visit  our  rooms  froni  day  to 
day— not  to  speak  of  the  work  of  the  three  branches — point  to  the  splendid  possibilities  before 
the  Library  as  a  factor  of  culture;  and  I  must  not  omit  to  express  full  confidence  that  the 
earnest  and  well  directed  efforts  of  your  honorable  body  are  destined  to  achieve  their  merited 
success  Respectfully,  J.  V.  CHENEY,  Librarian.

San  Francisco  Law  Library. 


SAN  FBANCISCO,  July  1,  1889. 

To  the  Honorable  the  Board  of  Supervisors 

Of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco: 

GENTLEMEN:  Herewith  the  Librarian  of  the  San  Francisco  Law  Library 
has  the  honor  to  submit  his  report  in  behalf  of  that  institution  ending  this 
day. 

The  membership  numbers: 

Shareholders 243 

Subscribers 21

Our  accessions  have  been  almost  exclusively  of  a  purely  legal  character; 
but  very  few  works  of  a  general  nature  have  been  added.  In  the  matter  of

Our  registered  volumes  now  number  27,529.  Of  these  796  were  added 
since  last  report.  Of  this  number  541  were  acquired  by  purchase,  35  by 
gift,  find  113  were  periodicals  bound  and  107  were  records  of  the  Supreme 
Court  bound.  The  following  lists  give  an  idea  of  the  character  of  the  books:

Industrial  School  Report. 


To  the  Honorable  the  Board  of  Supervisors 

Of  the  City  and  County  of  San  Francisco : 

GENTLEMEN.  In  compliance  with  Resolution  No.  2213  (Third  Series)  of 
your  Honorable  Board,  I  hereby  submit  my  annual  report  of  the  City  and 
County  Industrial  School  for  the  year  ending  June  30,  1889. 

Having  but  recently  assumed  charge  of  this  institution,  I  cannot  speak 
with  particular  exactness  of 'the -work  done  by  my  predecessor  during  the 
fiscal  year  just  ended.  For  information  relating  thereto  I  am  compelled  to 
rely  almost  entirely  upon  the  statements  of  the  officers  and  the  books  of  the 
institution. 

I  found,  when  entering  upon  the  discharge  of  the  duties  of  Superintend- 
ent on  June  15,  1889,  that  the  buildings  were  in  a  sad  state  of  decay,  and  as 
far  as  I  could  judge  no  effort  had  been  made  to  place  the  same  in  a  proper 
state  of  repair,  the  plumbing  being  very  defective,  the  floors  of  many  of  the 
work-houses  in  a  deplorable  condition,  the  kitchen  and  dining-rooms  de- 
pleted of  many  indispensable  utensils,  the  kitchen  range  and  baker's  oven 
so  badly  used  up  that  it  is  absolutely  necessary  that  they  be  put  into  imme- 
diate repair  or  entirely  replaced — the  latter  I  would  recommend  as  being  the 
better  and  in  the  end  the  cheaper  course  to  pursue . 

The  vegetable  garden  I  found  to  be  wanting  in  many  necessary  products 
of  daily  use.  This  we  have  taken  immediate  steps  to  rectify. 

The  farm  has  yielded  a  fair  crop  of  hay,  a  fraction  over  forty-five  ^45) 
tons.  As  for  the  potato  crop,  if  that  portion  remaining  ungathered  is  to  be 
judged  by  that  already  taken  from  the  ground,  the  yield  will  fall  far  short 
of  what  will  oe  necessary  for  the  next  year's  supply. 

The  horses  belonging  to  the  School  are  horses  which  formerly  belonged  to 
the  Fire  Department,  and  were  condemned  as  unfit  for  that  use.  They  are 
nearly  worthless  for  continuous  labor  around  the  School.  We  are  entirely 
without  a  horse  fit  for  buggy  use. 

The  buildings  and  surrounding  fence  are  so  old  and  have  evidently  been 
allowed  to  go  to  decay,  that  it  would  require  a  great  expenditure  of  money 
to  put  them  in  anything  like  proper  repair;  so  much,  in  fact,  that  I  would 
not  dare  make  an  estimate  thereon.  So  far  as  the  appropriation  will  allow  I 
shall  endeavor  to  repair  the  most  needed  portions . 


458  INDUSTRIAL  SCHOOL  EEPOET. 

The  boys  attending  school  I  find  to  bo  as  far  advanced  in  their  studies  as 
<jould  be  expected  from  boys  placed  in  a  similar  position. 

The  defects  and  dilapidated  condition  of  the  buildings  had  received  the 
serious  consideration  of  Mr.  W.  H.  Harrison  during  his  short  term  as  acting 
Superintendent.  He  had  planned  numerous  repairs  and  improvements,  and 
had  actually  entered  upon  the  work  with  a  zeal  and  spirit  that,  if  carried  to 
xi  successful  issue,  will  result  in  great  benefit  to  the  inmates  and  property. 
All  of  which  I  most  heartily  approve.  This  work"  will  not  only  be  of  direct 
benefit  to  the  institution,  but  during  its  prosecution  it  furnishes  the  boys 
with  constant  occupation,  thereby  engaging  their  minds  and  imparting  to 
them  a  mechanical  knowledge  which  may,  if  they  elect  to  lead  honest  lives 
on  their  release,  be  of  inestimable  value  to  them. 

The  unsightly  mound  of  earth  in  the  rear  of  the  building  is  being  re- 
moved, and  in  its  stead  we  contemplate  having  the  recreation  grounds  of  the 
school. 

The  front  yards  are  being  terraced,  and  it  is  pioposed  to  lay  the  same  out 
in  grass  plots  and  flower  beds. 

A  front  entrance  will  be  made  immediately  opposite  the  front  door  of  the 
building. 

The  inmates  have  enjoyed  the  best  of  health,  and  save  the  ordinary  indis- 
positions of  boyhood  no  complaints  have  been  made. 

The  boys  employed  in  the  shoe  and  tailor  shops  and  in  the  sewing-room 
have  taken  great  interest  in  their  work,  and  acquired  a  knowledge  in  their 
respective  branches  which  will  enable  them  if  they  choose  to  profit  by  it  to 
•earn  an  honest  livelihood  in  the  world. 

Mr.  Oratizio  Papallardo,  instructor  of  music,  has  brought  the  boys  in  his 
department  to  a  wonderful  degree  of  proficiency,  beginning  at  the  rudiments 
of  music,  and  thereby  planting  in  their  minds  such  a  knowledge  of  the  di- 
vine art  that  in  the  future  they  will  always  have  something  to  fall  back  upon 
when  all  else  fails.  The  Professor,  however,  labors  under  the  great  disad- 
vantage of  not  having  proper  instruments,  those  used  by  him  having  been  in 
constant  use  for  years  and  are  in  a  sad  condition. 

In  my  weekly  visits  to  the  Magdalen  Asylum  I  have  found  that  which  has 
ever  been  found  in  that  institution,  that  the  care  of  and  interest  taken  in  the 
girls  confided  to  the  Sisters  of  Mercy  has  won  for  those  most  excellent  ladies 
the  esteem  of  the  girls.  That  the  Sisters  have  and  are  doing  all  that  the 
most  exacting  could  wish  to  lead  those  under  their  charge  to  a  complete 
reformation  of  their  lives. 

I  seize  this  opportunity  of  expressing  to  Hon.  John  Foley,  Superintend- 
ent of  the  House  of  Correction,  my  appreciation  of  his  many  courtesies  ex- 
tended to  this  institution,  he  having  tendered  to  us  the  service  of  skilled 
mechanics  confined  in  that  institution,  thereby  enabling  us  at  a  small  ex- 
pense to  effect  many  repairs  in  the  School. 

To  the  interest  taken  by  Dr.  S.  S.  Kahn,  the  Visiting  Physician,  in  the 
welfare  of  the  inmates,  it  gives  me  great  pleasure  to  give  my  testimony  and 
express  my  gratitude. 


INDUSTRIAL  SCHOOL  REPORT.  4&9 

The  inter*  st  taken  by  Supervisor  H.  C.  Bingham,  Chairman  of  the  Indus- 
trial School  Committee,  and  Supervisor  Pilster,  of  that  committee,  has  done 
much  to  advance  the  usefulness  of  the  school,  and  to  them  I  am  indebted 
for  much  valuable  counsel. 

To  Mr.  W.  H.  Harrison,  Assistant  Superintendent,  and  prior  to  my  as- 
suming charge  of  the  School,  Acting  Superintendent,  I  cannot  sufficiently 
express  my  gratitude  for  the  promptitude  with  which  ho  placed  his  thorough 
knowledge  of  the  institution,  its  details  and  all  relating  thereto,  at  my  dis- 
posal. I  am  greatly  indebted  to  him  for  much  valuable  advice. 

To  the  officers  and  employees  I  am  indebted,  their  labors  being  arduous 
and  at  times  showing  no  satisfactory  results.  I  tender  them  my  sincere 
thanks,  hoping  to  receive  their  earnest  co-operation  in  the  future  as  in  the 
past. 

Trusting  that  our  labors  will  receive  the  approbation  of  your  Honorable 
Board,  this  report  is  respectfully  submitted. 

JOHN  E.  HAMIL
